Description

"This insightful book makes the concept of sustainability practical and manageable for organizations. Sustainability calls for a change in leadership style. Leaders must make an impact not by command and control but by asking powerful questions that lead to responsible action. Leading with powerful questions also ensures that the talent of employees is fully leveraged. What I like particularly about the book is that it covers the entire spectrum of key organizational processes: strategy formulation, strategy implementation, people and process management, and culture building. For each topic, useful tools and frameworks are provided to make the concepts actionable. A very useful book that will be valuable to both students and practitioners of management."

A. V. Vedpuriswar, Senior Director, Global Leadership Development, Cognizant Technology Solutions

 

"This book shows in great detail how questioning is at the root of leading and managing. By analyzing different types of questions in relation to strategy, group management, and culture, the authors show how important it is to ask the right question in moving things forward."

The authors show how it is possible to bridge the gab between mindset, theory and practice by strengthen the ability to ask powerful questions.

The book includes a large number of practical tools and informative illustrations for strategy formulation, meeting and process facilitation and individual talent development - and how to create an innovative culture for co-creating better and more responsible organizational solutions and results.
 
The ability to ask powerful questions becomes a fundamental compethence for every manager, leader and consultant, who are responsible for organizational development and strategic processes. 

 

The book presents a lot of tools and methods like Business Model Generation, Blue Ocean, Backcasting, guided group dialogues and meeting facilitating are presented - and every single tool is combined with informative illustrations linked to the basic generic question model of the book. In that way the authors help the readers to develop sustainable workplace communities and cultures in practice.
